California State University, Sacramento Sacramento State Leader

Super Sunday outreach at area churches fuels college dreams

President Nelsen Sacramento State leaders and staff fanned out across the community Feb. 12 to spread the word about making higher-education dreams come true, visiting four predominantly African American churches as part of the California State University’s annual Super Sunday outreach.

“What I’m here today to say is that (a college education) is possible,” President Robert S. Nelsen told the congregation at Antioch Progressive Church. “College is for you, it is for your children, it is for your grandchildren. It is for everyone.”

Now in its 12th year, the Super Sunday program focuses on improving college preparation and graduation rates among African American students. Sac State’s new provost, Ching-Hua Wang, took part in her first Sac State Super Sunday by visiting St. Paul Missionary Baptist Church. Student Affairs Vice President Ed Mills led the team visiting Common Ground Covenant Church, and several staff members visited Center of Praise Ministries.

After each service, representatives from the University’s Admissions and Outreach, and other offices met with families to hand out informational materials and answer questions. Statewide, CSU leaders are visiting more than 100 churches over two Sundays in February.
